Thanks, im very up to the 535D. I have owned a X5 with 3.0 SD,286 HP and it was fantastic. so powerfull.
Sports gearbox; Yes, I didn't think I'd use the paddles......but I do...and when you put the adaptive drive in sport the gear change is noticeably sharper.
Active cruise; I had the first generation on the E60, and I used it regularly on motorways, so it was an easy decision this time round. Now its got stop and go as well, then using it in heavy traffic on the motorway is even better...so for me definitely worth it.
HUD; that's more difficult to answer; on its own I would have to say its a marginal decision as its very much a toy, but when combined with speed limit warning and night vision, then yes, as these two options display information in the HUD.
I do have to admit that I'm a sucker for gadgets though.....
